Because you CARE

Ciao Bellas!!

So, now who gets to be called the bad blog partner? Possibly me, but for the sake of not putting ANYbody down (because who wants that?) I’ma say oops and move on, on behalf of both Jess and I. Hope you guys will continue to read even with our sporadic postings!

I thought I would post something from my all time FAVORITE charitable organization- CARE. Care is an amazing organization that fights global poverty particularly by empowering women.

“We place special focus on working alongside poor women because, equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help whole families and entire communities escape poverty. Women are at the heart of CARE’s community-based efforts to improve basic education, prevent the spread of HIV, increase access to clean water and sanitation, expand economic opportunity and protect natural resources. CARE also delivers emergency aid to survivors of war and natural disasters, and helps people rebuild their lives.”

Many of you may not have Christmas gifts for all the special people in your life yet. Sometimes I struggle to pick out a gift for those people who seem to have everything. But with only 8 shopping days left, CARE offers a perfect, and perhaps for many of you, different solution to this problem.

This holiday season how about you buy a product from CARE’s eSHOP and allow a part of the proceeds go towards CARE projects. With many products starting at 10 dollars, this may just be cheaper than your previous idea. Or simply send a donation instead. CARE is currently attempting to raise $2.5 million to “help women and girls lift themselves, their families and their communities out of poverty- for good.”

If you already have your gifts, don’t have the money, or simply aren’t interested, I encourage you to surf through the CARE website anyway. They have many powerful images and videos that are interesting at the very least. This is one I particularly liked

peace loves,
